Chihping

================================================================

 

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page. My name is Chihping Fu. I'm taking on an extreme personal challenge of running 10 ultra marathons of 100 miles or longer across USA and Canada in 2014, while asking you to help me raise urgently needed funds for Doctor Without Borders -http://www.doctorswithoutborders.org/.

Donations and Gift Matching

Your donations of 10 cents per mile, $10 for a 100-mile race, or $15 for a longer one will bring me strength and inspiration to each of my 30+ hours of continuous running. Above all, they make it possible for doctors and medical volunteers to provide urgent care to victims of armed conflict, bring emergency relief in the aftermath of natural or man-made disasters, and fight deadly epidemics.

Please also consider the gift matching program in your company. Every little bit helps and is greatly appreciated. All your generous donations are tax deductible and will go directly to Doctors Without Borders for a better world.

A Run For A Mile - A Better My Self

I'm an average mid-aged Joe. I was from Taiwan and now live in San Francisco Bay Area as a software engineer. I have two teenager kids, boy and girl, and a beautiful wife.

I never liked running until 17 years ago when, amid the stress from my work, going out on a trail near the company. The 5 minute jog tired me thoroughly but got me addicted, knowing that I could run beyond what I thought.

I never liked running until 17 years ago when, amid the stress from my work, going out on a trail near the company. The 5 minute jog tired me thoroughly but got me addicted, knowing that I could run beyond what I thought.

Ten years ago, I started my first ultra marathon, meaning over the 26.2 miles of a marathon. It encouraged me that an ordinary person can do something extraordinary. Later I won the first and second places in my age division each in Ultrarunner.net and USATF. In 2013, I completed Grand Slam of Ultrarunning and My Last Great Race in 2013, meaning four and six 100 mile races in one year respectively.

I love to share my joy in running, while giving back to my beloved sport by volunteering a few events and about 30 hour trail work every year. In addition to co-directing Fremont 50K and other events, I also step up to continue the historic Hunter S Thompson Fear and Loathing 50. All my events are free to all participants, while helping donate money to local Food Bank and used running gears to Mexican villages. 

I'm rank and file, not wealthy at all, but I feel rich in giving. Running has made me a better person, always wanting to give and never asking for return. This is my biggest reward beyond my finishes of 17 marathons and about 90 ultra's, including 24x 100 milers so far in 2013.

A Dime For A Mile - A Better Our World

In 2014, I'll be running a couple of 100 mile tough mountain footraces across USA and Canada. Many times during those tough mountain races, I'll feel like giving up. However, I'll gain the mental support by thinking of victims, field aid workers, and every one of you helping me raise funds to Doctors Without Borders, a dime for my every mile.

I'll take care of all my expenses. I'm not affiliated nor have I financial interest whatsoever. Therefore, 100% of your generous donation goes to Doctors With Borders. You may support my cause by selectively donating to any of my races with the suggested minimal amounts,
